    Yeah, that's it. I think that is her 1st after the birth of her daughter IIRC.

    Regarding whether the artisits are truly classic country, new country, alt-country, etc I really don't care. I pretty much just go by if I like their music. I actually dig some of Shania's stuff but don't necessarily like Faith Hill's much at all. And I agree that Patsy Cline was flat out awesome - we have a box set of her's that is fantastic. But to me they are 2 completely different types of music to compare, kinda like how I like Queensryche and the Grateful Dead and the Indigo Girls too but they really aren't very similar. But I like 'em all for their own merits.

    Dolly Parton is my fave but I also like Loretta, Patsy, Lucinda Williams, Kathleen Edwards, Kasey Chambers, etc. etc., as were all mentioned here. Oh and I sorta like Julie Roberts even though she's a little more pop than I usually go for.

    I was actually thinking of naming Julie Roberts myself. I am more into the ones you mentioned also, but Julie is one of the few who's come out in recent years in the "mainstream" that I like. I don't think she's TOO pop... in fact, I think she has one of the few bluesy-type country voices out there. Oh, and I'd vote her as most attractive one out now as well, with all apologies to Sara Evans, Faith Hill and others who received votes on here.

    In my oh-so-humble opinion, Patsy Cline is the greatest country vocalist (male or female) of all time.
    As for current female artists, Martina McBride is number one. She has an absolutely amazing voice. I've heard her sing in person without any accompaniment at all, just Martina and a microphone (and I doubt she even needed the mike), and she still blew everyone away. Martina is also terrific looking, and by all accounts a devoted wife and mother of three girls.
    I also like Sara Evans among contemprary country artists. I saw her in a concert a few weeks ago, and she was great.
    I saw Shania Twain in concert several years ago. She isn't the vocalist Martina and Sara are, and Patsy was, but she can sing, she put on a great show, and she is easy on the eyes.
    Trisha Yearwood has a great voice.
    Tammy Wynette was great, with a tear in every vocal.

    Alison Krauss, I can't believe no one has mentioned her, and Leeann Womack, no relation to Tony.

    For old country, Patsy Cline, Dottie West and GAC"s favorite Tammy Wynette.

    I'm sorry, but I have never heard some of these people you're listing on country radio or CMT.

    That's right, I tend to get locked into what is served up by those mass media sources as well. And for the most part I find a lot of stuff I like just by doing that. But every so often I check myself, go out there a ways, beyond what I hear on those same 2 channels everyday, and am always glad I did. Heck, I cannot find a radio station around that plays many of my favorite artists, or at least a reasonable selection of them.

    Is Sherrie Austin still performing? I remember enjoying her voice. I dunno if it was because she was Australian or what, but her voice had a very distinctive sound to it that you didn't hear much in country.

    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!
